Why do you feel the need to argue with your paying subscribers? Thats a bad business model. Majority of us don't want another toolbar or anything that pops up.
We simply want ads to be blocked, and thats what we're paying for.

the cow icon in the tasktray is enough for us to know its working.

Youtube is showing me ads again, i come here to see if there is a fix for that, and instead all i see is you guys fighting with us over this toolbar.

Maybe its time to go back to adblock, it doesnt force us to see anything. It just works.

I love ad muncher, but this is annoying, and its even more annoying that the devs dont care, or understand the basic point of why we want to block ads and other annoyances.

You are seeing ads on youtube because it's HTTPS.

disable that and it will work again.

Davebo we certainly don't want to sound evasive, but you can understand why we wouldn't want every competitor knowing about what we're working on.

One quick taster example though: what if there were filters available for a site that some users requested but not everyone would want. We could offer these filters via the toolbar to keep people happy who want them, and not annoy people who don't.

There are many, many possibilities from the toolbar, but we can't reveal them all just yet. Stay tuned :-)

I dont think he cares, go check out the last couple pages of the " hulu detecting admuncher " thread...

I for one wont renew when my license expires, back to ad block plus :)

With an attitude like his it wont be long before they have no subscriber base left.

bzg: we're working on Hulu, but they are purposefully making it difficult. That isn't entirely our fault ;-) Please stay tuned, if there is a fix we'll find it.

Murry,

Thank you for the reply.
I was under the impression that you weren't working on it because of the toolbar.
Jeff is saying one thing and now you say another.
Someone is lying to us, the truth will go a long way to help keep us loyal.


PS: My previous post was directed at Jeff's attitude, not HULU

bzg: please don't accuse us of lying. Jeff and I do our best to be on the same page at all times, but if this is ever not the case it is not a deliberate thing.

It is possible to work on multiple things at once, and Hulu is one of the things we are working on currently.

Youtube keeps redirecting me to the https version. Anyone know how to stop it from doing that?

The past ten years or whatever it is that I've been using Ad Muncher I've gotten used to no ads. Now I can't tolerate them.

Log out of google and then the main link for youtube won't be https...

or create a bookmark for the http version of youtube and use that to go there.

The secend suggenstion doesn't work for me (Chrome dev 25.x, always latest).
This will, I hope, be something munch-muncher can take care of when HTTPS is supported?

Even Facebook has had a tendency to throw me to https.

if SSL support is added then absolutely this will no longer be an issue.

It's sad that google doesn't give us the friggin option...

If? I thought SSL support was going to be one the features of version 5.

First off, thanks. For your answer. For making ad muncher. etc

Interesting that being logged in effects this. Logging out would be problematic in my particular scenario although maybe I'll see if there's still a youtube-not-google account available.

When I get an ad and I notice the https I change it to http. After watching several videos I find myself back in https....haven't been patient and observant enough to figure out why. Something must be linking me back to https obviously. Not sure if there's a way to get ad muncher to alter https://www.youtube.com/* links to http://www.youtube.com or not.

I'll try and watch whatever it is that's bringing me back to https. thanks.

ps I'd be more than happy to install a pre-alpha experimental https release and will promise not to complain or even report problems if you don't want to hear them.
